Europe adopts regulation for hydrogen-fueled vehicles

  • 27-Oct-2008 10:49 EDT

According to InterRegs, the introduction of hydrogen-fueled vehicles into the European market came a step closer to reality recently when the European Parliament adopted a draft European Commission regulation on hydrogen fuel systems. It covers the safety aspects of both compressed (gaseous) hydrogen and liquefied hydrogen, with requirements on the fuel-system components (e.g., storage tanks, fuel lines, valves) and on the vehicle installation. Once fully adopted and published, the regulation will allow vehicle manufacturers to gain European-type approval for hydrogen-fueled vehicles for the first time. The draft regulation has been passed to the European Council for its consideration.
